Age pays: 43 senior discounts, some starting at age 50

Aging doesn't always have its perks, but this list of discounts might add some pizzazz to the fact of getting older. Starting at age 50, the minimum age for AARP membership, seniors may cash in on numerous deals just for being born on or before the date required for the bargain. Simply flash an ID to collect on most discounts, although some apply only to AARP members and some are offered only by select chain franchisees.


Stay tuned for more opportunities for discounts!

Okay, it's kind of sucky that I ache and feel draggy in the mornings and only by taking a Tylenol-3 do I come back around to feeling human. Well, that and two cups of coffee.

It just doesn't seem right that I should have to rely on external and/or artificial means (like medication) to feel "normal." 

When my Mom was alive, one of her physical therapists told me that pain is a most unnatural state. Pain should be treated as an official disease and just as you'd take medicine for other things and not weird out about it, so should you do what you got to do to get rid of the "pain disease."

For me, it's not ONLY pain that's an issue.  Ladies, you will understand this... you know that all-over feeling-like-crap feeling you got with your period? Yeah. That. I wake up with that or it sometimes drags me down throughout the day (and I haven't had a period in over 20 years). The Tylenol-3 helps make that go away, too. 

I must be doing something right because nowadays, I only need Tylenol-3 in the mornings. It used to be that my back was in so much agony all the time, I had to take the Tylenol-3 every several hours.

It's also a puzzler to me how coffee has a magical way of smoothing things out. I'm just glad that it does.

89-year-old evicted from her home rescued from homelessness by her neighbors

89-year-old Angie Tyma from Houston, Florida was evicted from her home and was living in at a Days Inn hotel, pondering what her next decision would be.  The unexpected 3-week reprieve from the home she was renting was the result of the owner, whom she herself had sold the house to a few years ago, having stopped paying the mortgage.

Tyma had been a widower for 20 years and it had been that long since she had anyone helping to pay the monthly mortgage. That’s why she eventually sold the home and rented rather than owned the property. When foreclosure proceedings began, she didn’t know what to do, but she never expected that she would be evicted from her long-time home. That is, however, exactly what happened.

This was not just a place to live for Tyma. It was her home of 35 years. “They threw me out,” Tyma told Today in an interview. “I couldn’t believe it.”

Tyma never dreamed she would be evicted from her home, and at her advanced aged it was a surreal experience. “I went through hell and back,” she said.
